Deutsche Telekom Operator On EigenLayer

Deutsche Telekom, the parent entity of T-Mobile, joined as an operator on the Goerli testnet for EigenLayer. The move showcases Deutsche Telekom's involvement in web3 infrastructure. In EigenLayer, operators are entities who undertake the responsibility of running and maintaining nodes. The nodes play a role in servicing Actively Validated Services (AVSs). Operators, including Deutsche Telekom, gain delegated stake from restakers on EigenLayer. Operators enhance the decentralization and resilience of AVSs. Currently in its second of three launch stages, EigenLayer allows operators to register and choose specific AVSs for validation. Restakers on the Goerli testnet can now delegate their stake to Deutsche Telekom.
